Outstanding Wooden Greenhouse

We are so pleased with our choice of a 16'10" Hampshire in Chelsea Green. The whole thing gives a quality feel and just looks right.
We opted for the extra high shelf over the staging which is very useful.
As with any 'house' make sure you get the foundations right first. We went for sleepers (size: 2.4m x 100mm x 200mm) sleeper uprights concreted in at every join and every corner.
It went up very quickly and the finish is great - complete with a spare pot of touch up paint.
Highly enjoyable product and recommend it.

I ordered the 8ft9 by 18ft11 greenhouse, and waited 8 weeks or so for delivery and installation. While frustrating at the time as I felt like I was missing out on the growing season, it was well worth the wait and worth every penny. Having never owned a greenhouse it was a big investment to make.
The greenhouse is absolutely stunning, its exceptional quality, real craftsmanship goes into these.
I had guttering added which sets the greenhouse off, its not noticeable until up close, but I think makes it look more solid and permanent. The only downside so far is the guttering has been installed to level so the water it getting stuck at the wrong end and needs a little adjusting.
I also had some side windows added with "standard" openers, i say standard there actually really attractive brass screw openers, wasn't expecting them to be a feature in their own right. Auto opening top windows work as they should, which is good other wise i'd need a ladder to reach them.
The staging is very strong and sturdy, I don't know why but I didn't expect it to be.
The installers arrived at 8am, due to the size it took until 3pm to be completed, they didn't rush it and i'm glad, they took real pride in getting it perfect, they where very friendly and professional.
I'm so please I went with this, its met and exceeded my expectations, and is a real feature in the garden, not just a work space.
The only thing I might consider if I needed to order again is getting it pre-painted, although its expensive, you can't remove the windows so will never be able to fully paint the greenhouse a different colour. I don't mind to much as I will use a clear wood stain, but others might think its better to paint a different colour and I don't think you'd ever be able to get a perfect finish on it.

Attractive leanto greenhouse which matches our window frames and conservatory colour..No experience of construction and our only complaint is that the instructions and illustrations were not that good for us.Immediate response from manufacturers to a telephone query.
